What good is a brand new TV sitting wrapped underneath your Christmas tree this goodwill season if you’ve got nothing to watch on it? While plenty of TVs have built in digital tuners, only the most expensive have web connected features, and fewer still have storage space for recorded shows.
That’s where these set-top boxes come in. With features ranging from dual tuners for multi-channel recording, massive hard drives to store your shows on and a wealth of web-connected apps and movie download platforms, these set-top boxes will bring out the best from your flatscreen TV.
